Mister Gato, white courtesy phone, please

"Paging Mister Gato... passenger Gato, white courtesy phone, please..."
MANILA, Philippines (Reuters) -- A mouse upset the best-laid plans of an airline and nearly 250 passengers in the Philippines, grounding a plane for 13 hours while engineers tried to smoke out the rodent.
Asked for comment, an airport spokesman said:
"There was an incident before with a cockroach, but it's the first time that we had to deal with a mouse."
You know, as we say down South, I don't believe I'd have told that.
